Welcome to Wilgus Hall
Wilgus Hall, named after James A. Wilgus and built in 1963, accommodates approximately 230 women. Wilgus is located on the corner of Greewood Avenue and College Drive. Wilgus Hall is specifically unique because it is an all-women’s residence hall. This living option offers a terrific opportunity for women to build a close community within the hall. Each floor features a kitchenette and lounge area for the convenience of its residents. Wilgus hall has a newly renovated basement with study rooms, a computer room, laundry facility, ice machine, and offers The Lynn Collins Conference Room that features a TV and a kitchen in a large meeting and dining area. The conference area is well utilized throughout the year by many organizations on campus.
Wilgus Hall sponsors an annual Women’s Weekend and Holiday Party. This event is open not only to UW-Platteville students, but to community members as well. The Holiday Party is the highlight event of Wilgus Hall that residents and the community looks forward to every year.
From the Desk of the Resident Director
Happy November Wilgus! I can smell the roasted turkey and mashed potatoes already. The truth is November goes by fast. Before you know it the semster will be over. Please take a look at the following information and make sure you are ready for November events, Thanksgiving, and yes… the end of the semester.
Study hard in November but make sure you make time for fun. On November 6th Wilgus Hall will host the “Just Dance” FNC. The event will be located in the newly renovated Dobson Hall Basement from 9-11pm. Light refreshments will be available. The residence halls will host two other FNCs during the month of November. Join Hugunin Hall November 13th as they host “Java Jams.” Then battle with Dobson Hall, November 20th, as they host “Battleship.”
Wilgus Hall will close for students not registered to stay for the break beginning at 6:00 PM on Wednesday, November 25th. The halls reopen for students beginning at noon on Sunday, November 29th. If you would like to stay in Wilgus for all or part of Thanksgiving Break, please follow this link to sign up. There is no charge to stay for the break.
Resident Spring Intent Forms
All residents will be asked to complete an intent form for the upcoming spring semester. These forms are used to determine room changes, open spaces, etc. All residents of UW-Platteville are held to a full academic year contract. If rooms are available, some residents are able to change rooms within a hall or move to a different location on campus.
Note: No students living in the suite-style halls may move to a traditional hall per contract terms.
Students interested in moving into Wilgus Hall for the spring 2016 semester may email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to express interest and be put on a waiting list. Notification of placement will be sent out via email in early December. Moves will occur before the end of semester.
Every resident of Wilgus Hall received an email on Monday, November 2nd detailing the process of Thanksgiving Break and providing important information for the end of the semester. Please read both documents thoroughly. I have attached them here and here for your convenience.
Have a wonderful November!
